Stuck at recovery screen after trying FW 004 FOTA update

    I was trying to update my Minix box to the latest fw starting from 20141122.
    Everything went smootly until I got the 90% stuck error during the 004 update. I waited several hours and (after reading about the bug here) unplugged the device.

    After restart, the device went into reboot lock: during the update process at approx. 30%, the device always rebooted itself. After the 10th reboot I unplugged it again.

    Now its stuck at the recovery screen.

    I do not have Windows for flashing.

    Could someone please provide me the official 004 fw update.zip file, so I would try to finish the upgrade process by selecting the EXT (USB) update option from the recovery.

    Same problem as described above - following the above solution I just downloaded http://www.minixforum.com/downloads/download.php?file=X8H_PLUS_FW005_USB.zip . What is the checksum supposed to be ? Does anyone know what the root problem for this hang when updating using FOTA ? I presume it also checks the downloaded checksum before continuing ? Will this recovery mechanism result is lost data ?
    Thanks
